Pre-K students from the city of Rochester brought music to life Tuesday at the Hochstein School of Music and Dance.
This is the fourth year of the “Making Music, Making Strides,” curriculum that ties in music, storytelling, games, and motor skills with music from a variety of cultures. The program benefits brain development, focus, and sharing.
“It’s not just about learning music. It’s really about developing the whole person, and giving them the best chance that they have, can have in life,” said Peggy Quackenbush, president and executive director of Hochstein.
Hochstein is celebrating 95 years of offering music and dance instruction to all people, regardless of age, skill, or background. The school serves nearly 4,000 students annually.
